LAB is now in its fourth season - Fab Four! Your support is more vital than ever before. Consider a gift to Los Angeles Baroque and help our goals become reality. Please click on the green button directly above to donate online, or contact us to donate offline.
Aside from our annual fund drives we rely almost entirely on members' dues and free-will donations at concerts to fund our activities. Help us continue to bring early music to greater LA's musicians and communities!
Thank you for your support,

Los Angeles Baroque
LAB is a weekly learning environment where musicians of all levels can come together for expert coaching and to receive—and give local communities—enjoyable, meaningful performance experiences under its specialist Artistic Directors.
2019 FALL FUND DRIVE: FAB FOUR!
Help us reach our goal to continue to bring quality early music training and performances to Southern California's musicians and communities.
· Free community concerts
· Community partnerships
· Breakout programs
2019-20 marks our fourth season as Los Angeles’s only community program for orchestral baroque study and performance.
We truly value our Angels—those who contribute $300 or more. These lead donors are listed in our printed programs and offered priority seating at our concerts. However, donations in any amount are gratefully accepted.
When you contribute, you are giving vital support to:
· Scholarships. We give six full scholarships per season based on merit, motivation and need. This fall our young scholarship recipients are violinist Leyla Fezuleyeva, who moved here from Louisiana this fall to continue her graduate studies at Claremont Graduate University; and Sylvia Schwartz, who also moved here recently and is pursuing a career as a Baroque violinist.
· Free community concerts. Last spring and this fall we performed at three Los Angeles Public Libraries. Our concerts were so successful that LAPL has just awarded us a spot on their system-wide cultural programming series: LA Made.
· Partnerships. In the spring of 2020 LAB will partner with its sister community baroque orchestra in San Diego: Kensington Baroque. We will join forces and the combined groups will perform in San Diego on March 7 and in South Pasadena on March 8.
· Spreading our wings. In June of 2020 we will perform in Berkeley’s Early Music Festival Fringe series, reprising our concert production of John Blow’s opera Venus and Adonis. This project gives Los Angeles’s young aspiring singers a chance to learn and perform a Baroque opera. Further at the Berkeley Festival, we will participate in a community ensemble day, with five other Western United States community performing groups.
WE VALUE YOUR SUPPORT!
